Ordered a take away duck salad and fajita... Unbelievable quality and fresh ingredients with such good flavours! Reason to stay Koh Tao for a few extra nights... Super impressed

“Steaks cooked to perfection! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

My partner had been travelling for a month and he was craving for a steak...one that felt like home. This was his favourite meal the whole time travelling!!

Service excellent both wait and bar staff, atmosphere was great, plus we got to hang with our awesome dive instructor!

“Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

Got the duck breast curry and it was literally the best duck breast curry I've ever had. It was also the only one iLife ever had. But, based on this experience, I'd get it again. Everyone else's meals were good, too--above average Thai food, especially for the island. Prices were in the $5 range.

“Ok”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013

You can taste a good burger, thing which is hard to make on an island without any beefs or cows! That is already a good performance. Otherwise, clean and people are nice.
Location is maybe not the best on one side of a road.
Prices are okay, 200 B for one burger.
